En-Bloc Clip Loader

This popped up recently on the internet and I just have been fascinated. An En-Bloc clip loader for M1 Garand rifle clips. If I shot Garands a lot, this might be a must.

So are these devices still available? Are they being made? Is there a modern alternative used by the Camp Perry crowd? Are the originals rare or expensive?

I have to admit, the 7.62 Garands have been calling me for a while. If I was a serious student of the M1 Garand, I “could” justify buying such a contraption.

If you or someone you know has any information on these clip loaders, please leave a comment or pictures below. I am very interested in becoming educated on the subject.

    Unless this thing is dirt cheap, it’s way to easy to load Garand clips.

    • Not disputing that. But if you needed to load 30 to 300 garand clips a day, this might be a game changer.

        🙂 No foolin’ ! I can’t carry that many.

    I’ve owned Garands since about 1992, and shot them quite a bit, and I’ve never seen this thing or anything like it. Loading Garand clips isn’t too much trouble as long as you’re loading 10 or 15 for a day’s outing, but I can imagine that if you were loading 25 or 50 for combat operations this thing would be nice to have.

    • Never seen one that I recall. I’ve been shooting or looking at Garands about as long as you.

    interesting, don’t need one but want one too. May build one but I would have to unload loaded clips to get the ammo and clips!-lol. My first DCM Garand was $65 about 1987ish! I have several various historical Garand books and have never seen such and machine even mentioned?? or even how the clips were loaded from the factory…great post Marky Mark

    • Thanks! I thought it was a neat item and figured the folks would appreciate it.
